She was once a petite, pretty blond barmaid, but now Candice Armstrong from London looks more man than woman and even has a small penis-like growth -- all due to her steroid use.

She was once a petite, pretty blond barmaid, but now Candice Armstrong from London looks more man than woman and even has a small penis-like growth -- all due to her steroid use.

The burly brunette features on British body builder Jody Marsh’s new documentary, Jodie Marsh On… Steroids, in which she talks about her masculine transformation.

Candice’s steroid use has had a number of side-effects – her bulging muscles won’t look out of place on male beefcakes, she sprouts facial, back and chest hair and speaks in a deep voice.

The 28-year-old says that it was never her intention to become so masculine: “You could argue that when I wanted big arms and broad shoulders, a bigger back and small hips, that that was a masculine look. But I didn’t consciously decide I want to change from a woman into a man.”

While steroids have to a degree turned her into a man, Candice says it won’t stop her from continuing to use it. “I think it would do more harm than good,' she says. “I'd lose all the muscles, but I wouldn't lose all the masculine qualities like the facial hair and the deep voice... It doesn't really go back.”

On the plus side, her new look has allowed her to do something she loves – drag shows. “It’s given [me] the opportunity to live out one of my dreams,” she says of her transformation. “I’ve started doing a bit of drag and I love it.”
